Get Transactions Example

To get a list of transactions for a bank account, you'll want to use the statement (POST) resource. The required parameters for this resource are:

Parameter Name Notes
ofx_url (obtain from OFX Home)
fid (obtain from OFX Home)
org (obtain from OFX Home)
user_id Your login username
password Your login password
bank_id Routing number (leave blank for CREDITCARD accounts)
account_id Your account number
date_start YYYYMMDD format
date_end YYYYMMDD format

For example - If you have a checking account at Chase, you would use the directory at OFX Home to get Chase's OFX information (direct link) including the ofx_url, fid, and org. The rest of the paramters should be known by you already. Using wget, you could download transactions for your Chase account, for date range 9/1/2013 to 9/15/2013, and save as JSON file with the following command:

wget --header="Accept: application/json" --post-data="ofx_url=
  &date_end=20130915" http://localhost:1234/statement -O statement.json
You can’t perform that action at this time.
